I love this school. The teachers are amazing and they try to make school as fun as possible. They have great activities and school projects. I love the Greek day you get to have in 7th grade, it's amazing. The students are also really good and social. I recommend this school to everyone

The teachers are there to help the students and also to challenge them to work harder. The kids won't have to worry about much else besides their work. There are a few problems with the ...  Read more

James Weldon Johnson has taken a nose dive in 2010. My son, in the gifted program, became bored with the easy and repetitive nature of the work in 6th grade: it was basically a repeat of 5th grade. I am under the understanding that JWJ had to lower their academic standards this year to accommodate a ...  Read more
